Reports of the Total Solar Eclipse 2002

On December 4th, 2002, a total solar eclipse was visible from parts of the Southern Hemisphere. The eclipse began in the South Atlantic at sunrise, passed over the African continent from Angola, through Zambia, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, and South Africa to Mozambique, continued across the Indian Ocean south of Madagascar, ending at sunset in Australia.

This page provides links to reports and photos documenting the eclipse. Most of the links have been obtained by scanning the Solar Eclipse Mailing List of December 2002 and January 2003. The reports are ordered by country, west to east in the order they were visited by the shadow.
